LEE CHONG WEI VS LIN DAN

The Peak (Malaysia) - - Commonwealth -

Malaysia went into a near­manic frenzy dur­ing the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, when Lee Chong Wei fi­nally beat long-time ri­val Lin Dan of China in a highly charged semi-fi­nal to reach the bad­minton men’s sin­gles fi­nal. Lee, how­ever, had to set­tle for the sil­ver medal af­ter los­ing to Chen Long from China in the fi­nals. Even though Malaysia didn’t win the gold that day, it was still a mo­men­tous oc­ca­sion for all Malaysians.
